The 2021 Honda Passport is a mid-size SUV that pleases buyers at the Alameda Honda dealer, thanks to its abundant passenger and cargo space, powerful V6 engine, and long list of standard safety features. The Passport stands out in its class, which is why Car and Driver gave the 2021 Passport its prestigious Editor’s Choice Award.
According to the Alameda Honda dealership, the 2021 Passport seats five passengers and comes in four trim levels: Sport, EX-L, Touring and Elite. The Passport is equipped with a 3.5-liter V6 engine that develops 280 horsepower and 262 lb-ft, connected to a nine-speed automatic gearbox. Front-wheel drive is standard on all Passport models except the Elite, which comes with all-wheel drive. The Sport, EX-L and Touring trims get all-wheel drive as an option.

The Passport’s direct-injection V6 engine has variable cylinder management, Eco Assist, and a stop/restart function to provide optimum fuel efficiency. The Passport gets an EPA-estimated 20 mpg city/25 mpg highway with front-wheel drive, while all-wheel-drive models return 19 mpg city/24 mpg highway.*
The automotive media gives the 2021 Honda Passport high marks. Edmunds writes: “The best way to think of the 2021 Honda Passport is a Honda Pilot without the third row of seats. It’s a bit easier to maneuver than the Pilot and offers more interior space than the smaller Honda CR-V. With both the Pilot and CR-V holding very favorable spots in their respective classes, it’s no surprise the Passport is also a great pick.” The 2021 Honda Accord gets EPA-estimated fuel economy up to 30 mpg city/38 mpg highway with the base turbo-four engine.*

The driver and passengers will appreciate the Pilot’s abundant head- and leg room. There’s room for everyone to stretch out and stay comfortable. The rear seat is very spacious, and the cabin materials are decidedly upscale. The Passport also provides plenty of room to store and take along belongings, with over 41 cubic feet of space behind the second row.
The base Passport Sport trim comes with keyless entry and ignition, LED headlights, tri-zone automatic climate control and a 60/40-split rear bench. Also standard is an 8.0-inch touchscreen, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, an audio system with seven speakers, and Bluetooth.
Standard safety features include automatic high beams, adaptive cruise control, a rearview camera, lane keeping assist, forward collision mitigation and automatic emergency braking. Options include rear cross traffic alert, front and rear parking sensors, and blind spot monitoring.
At the top of the lineup, the Passport Elite trim comes with a heated steering wheel, heated/ventilated front seats, rain-sensing wipers and wireless phone charging.
Safety is important to buyers looking for a new family SUV. As of this writing, the 2021 Honda Passport has yet to be tested by the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration. The organization awarded the 2020 Honda Passport with an overall safety rating of five out of five stars. We expect to see the same results for the 2021 Passport.
